Question 7900Gt SLI Question

How similar do 7900GT's need to be in order to run in SLI: For example; will a BFG 7900GT and Asus 7900GT run in SLI if there core and memory clocks are slightly different? Or do they need to be the exact same model and manufacturer?

i doubt it, you need exact same cards, with same clocks i tink, if you can afford the 7900 GT SLi get the x1900XTX or the 7900 GTX. dun waste money on SLi

The fact is that BFG (which I have) 7900gt's oc to nearly the same core and memory speeds (550/1600) as the GTX and in SLI, blow both single cards completely out of the water and for the exact same price!!! 2 BFG 7900gt's = $650. Regardless of what people say here on this forum, SLI provides a profound performance increase with 7900GT (G71) GPU's!!

im getting two evga 7900gtx and running them in sli. i hope. when they come in stock. i expect around 13000 in 3dmark 05.

i think it is worth the money if you are benchmarking but if you are just gaming then there is no reason.

This is y i prefer crossfire to sli cos u can use to completely different cards that are compatible. and as far as quad sli goes thats just pointless atleast for another 2 years.

No, they will not be able to run in SLI together.

Lol probably because we score higher in 05 and 06 makes our computer look like crap.
